Great Britain, minus Andy Murray, begin their Davis Cup season this weekend in Euro-Africa Zone Group 2 with an away tie against Lithuania.
Lithuania might not be the biggest name on paper but I think this is going to be a very close tie and the key thing for me will be how the young Lithuanians handle the pressure.
If they handle it well - I think they'll get through.
Lithuania's Ricardas Berankis is the key player in this tie. He has a better record than anyone else playing, but he is 19-years old and has never been under this type of pressure before.
With home advantage in the Davis Cup some players just fade away while others are lifted by it. The outcome of this match will depend a lot on how Berankis copes.
I think the Brits will be well prepared but do they have the talent to beat someone like Berankis if he is playing at the top of his game? Unlikely.
I have not yet seen Berankis play but I have been following his results and it looks like he is going to be a top 100 player very shortly. He got to the quarter-finals in San Jose and that is far beyond the horizon of where any British player in this team can reach.
I think the doubles will go to Britain, that looks a gimmie, but we might have to beat Lithuania's second man Laurynas Grigelis (ranked 523) twice to win the tie.
My gut feeling is that we will dig it out and win 3-2 but it is only a gut feeling, and it will come down to who handles the atmosphere best.
James Ward comes in for Britain to make his debut. I saw him at Queens last year and wasn't impressed. It's a year on now and I haven't seen much of him recently so he might have improved, but it's a tricky tie for him to make his debut in.
No doubt, if Britain lose there will be calls for captain John Lloyd (pictured) to go, but you can only do so much with the players at your disposal.
In football, if you are the coach and the results don't come, you go, no matter how good you are. Maybe it should be the same in tennis but I'm not sure there is anyone out there who could do any better - there isn't much to work with.
John has faced some criticism for holding tournaments to select players but I think that's actually a good idea.
If the players were ranked higher it wouldn't be necessary, but the British players can often be playing in different tournaments in different continents so it is hard to judge one player against another - John can't be everywhere.
So these tournaments allow him to evaluate things and to see the players under pressure, and there is nothing like seeing a player in a pressure situation to help you understand what he is all about.
A word too for the Irish Davis Cup team who will meet Great Britain in the next round if both sides win.
The Irish would love to have a crack at Britain and it would be a horrible tie for Great Britain
The press would have an absolute field day if Britain lost to Ireland. For the press and the Irish, it would be like all their Christmases and birthdays had come together!
